as some of you know i have a new vehicle to play with these days
its a Land Rover... and dont get me wrong its fun, but when i have been driving the new Disco i realised how much i like my own little Astra.
So yesterday was a day of fixing problems.
First up was the aerial:
I bought a shark fin aerial about 2 years ago, and i have never had the radio, so for about 2 years i've only been listening to CDs.
Since recently my girlfriend has been moaning about listening to the radio I decided to fix it.
First strip the roof
and i still had my old radio aerial lying about too
since my old radio worked fine i am going to basically switch the internals
now its ready to go into the shark fin
a little pre-assembly
now i have a crystal clear radio reception again woho!!
also another thing bothering me was the back lights on the inside, they were still bulbs and since i change my front interior lights to LEDs its only fair i do the same to the back.
a little designing
changing the old 501 bulb:
to the new Steve created LED bulb
now lets see a new comparison picture:
much more intensity now and also the bonus white colour
this is the housing finished
now installed back into the car:
camera doesn't do it justice but it lights up the back perfectly, nice and bright
and here is the front as well
So yeah pretty much happy again to be getting my finger in on the car again.
